Lang Greene has an article:Some Players Getting By On Potential...Tyrus is in it...
This is the blurb on TT and the link:
Tyrus Thomas, Forward, Charlotte Bobcats
Expectation: After re-signing with Charlotte last summer to a reported five-year $40 million deal, at the very least Thomas was expected to wrestle the Bobcats' starting power forward spot away from veteran Boris Diaw.
The Reality: While the Bobcats are still in the hunt to secure a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the team took a huge risk by allowing starting point guard Raymond Felton to walk in free agency and shipping center Tyson Chandler to Dallas. The continued development and maturity of Thomas was expected to ease the blow of the lost talent.
It hasn't happened.
Before suffering a knee injury back in January which will keep him on the shelf for eight weeks, Thomas was averaging fewer minutes than in the 2010 campaign and only registered one start for the struggling Bobcats. Thomas is freakishly athletic who finished in the league's top 10 in blocks per game in 2009, but it may be time to stop expecting him to become anything more than a strong interior defender.
